Nickelodeon reality TV series, Slime Cup will return in July with an audition tour about to get underway with new US hosts Daniella Perkins and Owen Joyner from Knight Squad, traveling down under to meet their Aussie fans.
Auditions will be held at five Westfield centres in Victoria & NSW, plus auditions in Auckland and casting via online.
Ben Cox, General Manager and Vice President of Nickelodeon Australia and New Zealand says, “We’re thrilled to bring back Slime Cup for another Slime-packed season. By partnering with Westfield we’ve been able to expand our live auditions tour to three times as many locations, opening the opportunity up to more kids than ever before.
“While we anticipate strong numbers across all locations, we are preparing for a particularly large turnout at the Sydney based auditions with Daniella and Owen, our stars from Knight Squad, hosting the three day event.”
In partnership with Westfield, Nickelodeon is expanding their search for local superstars, taking over six centres across Victoria, New South Wales and for the first time, Auckland in New Zealand, to host live auditions.
Throughout the audition tour, Nickelodeon is on the hunt for 12 teams of besties, aged 9 to 13, to take on Slime-filled challenges and star in season four of the series. For the first time ever, the team with the most mega, Mega Squad(a group of humans and non-humans that think you’re amaze-balls and are prepared to cheer you on) will also be invited to take part in the on-screen action.
Each live audition will see want-to-be Slime Cup contenders attempt a series of challenges set to test their coordination, teamwork and problem solving skills. Besties will need to ‘land as many tennis balls in Slime-filled cups fastened to a sombrero’ (aka Slimebrero), or work with their partner to ‘connect interconnecting wide-brimmed hats topped with a cup of Slime’, before progressing to the interview process where they can introduce their Mega Squad and share why they should be in season four of Slime Cup.
The six-episode series, Slime Cup will premiere Mondays at 5.30pm from Monday 1st July until Monday 5th August, on Nickelodeon.
Slime Cup Live Audition Tour will take place throughout April 2019.
Activities across each location include:
– 2 x Slime challenges; Slimebrero shoot-out & Connect Slime Caps
– Green tube optical course with internal ball pit to climb through
– Inline ‘Runway’ for kids to strut their stuff and show off their costumes
– Foxtel’s Awkward Family Photo station for squads to pose in front of
– PlayStation station with fun kids games
– Fan Zone area for Mega Squads to cheer on teams
